It must be late in the day.

I need help using telnet to connect to a mail client on exchange and send a test message.

I have an application (TigerPaw) on server1 (AD DC FS DHCP) . It needs to send Pop3 to the server Exchange server to gain aynalitics from our mail campains.
That  is not working, so thay are requireing me to telnet , connect and send a message to prove  the mailserver is allowing pop3 communications.

I set filters in fthe firewalls on both servers with POP wide open (i'll locak it down later).

I can telnet to exchange 110
I cant seem to log in.

what the heck !!!  

Can someone help me out.

This is all on our internal lan. could the network firewall be the problem??

Anyway ... please help
